Louisiana Soldiers in the War of 1812

Louisiana Soldiers in the War of 1812


This book includes a lot of names from A to Z in very small print. As the book’s forward makes clear, “this is, in fact, an index to the compiled service records of the 1812 soldiers from Louisiana.” The book can be very helpful.

It was originally published by the Baton Rouge: Louisiana Genealogical and Historical society, 1963.

The Copeland Chronicles II

This is a huge book with 828 pages, 32,000 names and over 850 photos. It covers the Copelands and their descendants from the colonies to 2011. A great amount of work went into this book and for the most part it is a wonderful book. There are some errors but there are always errors in genealogy. Like other genealogy books you have to use it as a guide and do your own research. I was disappointed because my Copeland/Coplen brick wall was mentioned but there were no hints to who his parents were and the man believed to be his bother was not connected to him or anyone else.

I do recommend the book for anyone researching the Copeland/Coplen families.
